The child abuse scandal of the British children sent abroad
For several decades, the UK sent children across the world to new lives in institutions where many were abused and used as forced labour. It's a scandal that is still having repercussions now.
Imagine the 1950s, in the years before air travel became commonplace or the internet dominated our lives. Imagine being a child of those times, barely aware of life even in the next town. An orphan perhaps, living in an British children's home.
Now imagine being told that shortly you would board a ship for somewhere called Australia, to begin a new life in a sunlit wonderland. For good. No choice.
It happened to thousands of British children in the decades immediately following World War Two, and they had little understanding of how it would shape their lives.
The astonishing scandal of the British child migrants will be the first subject for which the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will hold full public hearings. It's first because the migrants are now nearing the end of their lives.
Clifford Walsh stands in the port of Fremantle near Perth in Western Australia.
He is now 72. Fremantle is where, in 1954, aged nine, he stepped off the ship from London, looking for the sheep he'd been told outnumbered people in Australia 100 to one.
He ended up at a place called Bindoon.
The Catholic institution known at one point as Bindoon Boys Town is now notorious. Based around an imposing stone mansion in the Australian countryside, 49 miles north of Perth, are buildings Walsh and his fellow child migrants were forced to build, barefoot, starting work the day after they arrived.
The Christian Brothers ruled the place with the aim of upholding order and a moral code. Within two days of arriving he says he received his first punishment at the hands of one of the brothers.
"He punched us, he kicked us, smashed us in the face, back-handed us and everything, and he then sat us on his knee to tell us that he doesn't like to hurt children, but we had been bad boys.
"I was sobbing uncontrollably for hours."
His story is deeply distressing. He tells it with a particularly Australian directness. He is furious.
He describes one brother luring him into his room with the promise he could have some sweet molasses - normally fed, not to the boys, but the cows. The man sexually abused him.
He claims another brother raped him, and and a third beat him mercilessly after falsely accusing him of having sex with another boy.
"We had no parents, we had no relatives, there was nowhere we could go, these brothers - these paedophiles - must have thought they were in hog heaven."
He has accused the brothers at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the first time he has fully disclosed his experiences.
At the time he says: "I was too terrified to report the abuse. I knew no other life.
"I've lived 60 odd years with this hate, I can't have a normal sexual relationship because I don't like to hold people," says Walsh. "My own wife, I couldn't hug."
He was troubled by all the memories.
"I couldn't show any affection. Stuff like that only reminded me of what the brothers would do all the time."
Britain is perhaps the only country in the world to have exported vast numbers of its children. An estimated 150,000 children were sent over a 350-year period to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and what was then Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe.
Australia was the main destination in the final wave between 1945 and 1974.
There were twin purposes - to ease the population of orphanages in the UK and to boost the population of the colonies.
The children were recruited by religious institutions from both the Anglican and Catholic churches, or well-meaning charities including Barnardo's and the Fairbridge Society. Their motivation was to give "lost" children a new life, and it would be wrong to say that every one of Britain's exported children suffered.
But for too many, the dream became a nightmare. Hundreds of migrant children have given accounts of poor education, hard labour, physical beatings and sexual abuse.
Attempts were made to recreate a happy home life. At the Fairbridge Farm School in Molong, four hours outside Sydney, children lived in cottages, each with a "house mother".
Fairbridge was not a religious order, like the Christian Brothers, and some of its former children have praised the start it gave them.
But not Derek Moriarty. He was at Molong for eight years, one of hundreds of children to have endured poor food, inadequate education and physical labour. His life has been deeply affected by his Fairbridge upbringing.
He suffered at the hands of the then-principal of the school, Frederick Woods, a man he says kept 10 canes, and to the horror of the children, a hockey stick - which he used to beat the boys.
Perhaps inevitably, Moriarty alleges sexual abuse - by a member of staff who took his clothes off and touched him.
"I was nine or 10," he says, "and I didn't understand it." He eventually ran away from Molong, attempted suicide at the age of 18 and has always suffered from depression, not helped by the years it took to discover the details of his family back in the UK.
In 2009 the Australian government apologised for the cruelty shown to the child migrants. Britain also made an apology in 2010.
The pressure for answers and reparations had been growing. Questions might never have been asked, had it not been for two seekers of the truth.
In the early 1980s a Nottingham social worker, Margaret Humphreys, came across Australian former migrants who had suddenly started to realise they might have living relatives in the UK.
Many had been told, as children, their parents were dead. It wasn't true. "It was about identity," she says, "being stripped of it and being robbed of it."
Her life's work has been about reuniting "lost children" with their lost relatives. Having reinstated their sense of identity, she went on to build a lifelong bond with many former migrants, and they began to disclose the physical and sexual abuse they had suffered.
"As you go along, you're learning more and more about the degrees and the awfulness of the abuse. That's been incremental because people can really only talk about it over a longer period of time when there is trust. There's a lot of trauma involved here."
Further revelations about the Fairbridge homes were uncovered by one of their own.
David Hill was shipped out from Britain with his brothers to the Fairbridge farm at Molong in 1959. He was one of the lucky ones. His mother followed him later, providing him with a stable future.
He became a highly successful public figure in Australia. He was chairman and managing director of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and is a keen historian. Hill brought together the Fairbridge boys and girls to tell him their stories. Like those from the west of Australia - they were dominated by beatings and abuse.
Derek Moriarty was among those who unburdened themselves for the first time to Hill, as part of the research for his 2007 book The Forgotten Children and a 2009 ABC television documentary.
"I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders when I told him," Moriarty says. "But my abuse paled into insignificance compared to some others."
David Hill's work triggered claim after claim from men and women about their experiences as children.
They wrote and told him of a litany of sexual abuse. There was no sexual education at the school and, failing to understand what was happening, they were left traumatised.
Hill makes the astonishing claim that 60% of the children at Fairbridge Molong allege they were sexually abused, based on more than 100 interviews.
The Australian law firm Slater and Gordon successfully claimed compensation on behalf of 215 former Fairbridge children, of whom 129 said they had been sexually abused.
For the Christian Brothers the figures are even higher. The Australian Royal Commission on child abuse recently revealed 853 people had accused members of the order.
Hill is one of the expert witnesses who will give evidence to the UK Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA). The inquiry has been bitterly criticised since its creation - and some have questioned its huge scope.
Is there any point in it considering the history of child migration, dating back so far?
The Australian Royal commission is examining child migration closely. In 1998 the UK's Health Select Committee also held hearings, in which the Child Migrants Trust described the Christian Brothers institutions as "almost the full realisation of a paedophile's dream".
But the committee did not get to the bottom of it, concluding: "The Christian Brothers were very insistent that the abuses were not known to those who controlled these institutions. We cannot accept this."
Sources close to the current public inquiry have told the BBC it will produce new and startling revelations about the scale of sexual abuse abroad, and attempts by British and Australian institutions to cover it up.
This will include an examination of the claims of some child migrants that they were sent abroad weeks after reporting sexual abuse at their children's home in the UK. The allegation is that they were hand-picked. Either to get them out of the way, or because they were of interest to paedophiles.
Three former Fairbridge boys have claimed that the then-Australian Governor General, Lord Slim, sexually molested them during rides in his chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce while visiting the home. It is understood these allegations could be considered by the inquiry.
The inquiry could also definitively answer a crucial historical question. Did the British government know it was sending children to be mistreated in a foreign country?
Margaret Humphreys is adamant: "We want to know what happened, we want to know who did it, and we want to know who covered it up for so long."
In fact, government files reveal that there was a time when the migration programme could have been stopped. It came in 1956 when three officials went to Australia to inspect 26 institutions which took child migrants.
There was enough warning of this "fact-finding mission" to allow a Fairbridge official to warn the manager of the Molong farm: "It would be advisable to see (the children) wore their socks and shoes." Even in a land where it was easy to encounter poisonous wildlife, that wasn't standard practice at many of the institutions.
The resulting report, delivered back to the British government, was fairly critical. It identified a general lack of expertise in child care and worried that children were living in institutions in remote rural areas, whereas the trend in Britain was towards fostering them into urban families.
However the report had a second "secret" section, never published, which went a little further.
This named names - including those of five institutions which were not up to standard. When the UK's Home Office saw the report, it wanted five more added to create what became an infamous blacklist - places which should not receive more children because of poor standards of care. Fairbridge Molong and Bindoon were both on the list.
St Joseph's orphanage, Sydney
Dhurringile Rural Training Farm, Victoria
St Joseph's, Neerkol, nr Rockhampton, Queensland
Salvation Army Training Farm, Riverview, Queensland
Methodist Home, Magill, Adelaide
St Vincent's Orphanage, Castledare
St Joseph's Farm School, Bindoon, Western Australia
St John Bosco Boys' Town, Glenorchy, Hobart
Fairbridge Farm School, Pinjarra, Western Australia
Fairbridge Farm School, Molong, New South Wales
But the report had barely scratched the surface. It made no mention of sexual or physical abuse.
Given the length of time it took for the child migrants to tell their stories, this is perhaps unsurprising.
But during the post-war years, sexual accusations were made against three principals of the Fairbridge Farm School at Molong.
David Hill has revealed they included a claim that Frederick Woods - the man who beat boys with a hockey stick - was "sexually perverted" and had abused a girl resident. An internal investigation exonerated him.
This does not appear to have been disclosed by the Fairbridge Society either to the public or the 1956 inspectors. They had a schedule to keep to, and their visits to institutions spread across a vast country were fleeting.
Similarly, at the Christian Brothers' homes in Western Australia, children were terrified of criticising the brothers.
Former Bindoon resident Clifford Walsh was there during the fact-finding mission. He doesn't remember it, but says speaking out would have resulted in an extremely severe, possibly even life-threatening, beating.
The truth is that neither the institutions, nor the inspectors, came close to creating the sort of atmosphere where children could tell them their darkest secrets and be taken seriously. If that had happened, not just in Australia, but throughout modern British history, we might not have needed the current public inquiry.
It might have missed the crimes being committed in the institutions, but when the 1956 report hit the desks of Britain's bureaucrats it created quite a stir.
Something strongly resembling a cover-up began. Files held at the National Archive set out the response of government officials. One wrote in 1957 that the Overseas Migration Board, which advised the government, was "sorry the mission was sent at all".
Some on the board "urged very strongly that the report should not be published."
The government archives record that at a meeting with the organisations running the migrant programmes, Lord John Hope, under-secretary of state for Commonwealth relations, discussed what would be disclosed to parliament from the report.
"I think you can rely upon us to do what we can in as much as we shall pick out all the good bits," he said. "I shall not be in the least critical in Parliament."
The UK Fairbridge Society piled on its own pressure - its president was the Duke of Gloucester, uncle to the Queen. Officials discussed the "immediate parliamentary repercussions" which could result from holding up the migrant programme.
Sir Colin Anderson, the director of the Orient Line, which benefited from the business of shipping the children, appealed for the report not to be made public because of the controversy it might cause.
In a sympathetic phone call, a senior official from the Overseas Migration Board responded that the Fairbridge Society was an "extremely fine endeavour for which everyone felt the highest praise".
And what did the government do? Files at the National Archive show officials squirmed in institutional discomfort at the idea of taking any meaningful action.
In June 1957 the Commonwealth Relations Office sent a secret telegram to the UK High Commission in Australia - "we do not want to withhold approval", it said, for more children to to be sent from the UK.
After more pressure from the Fairbridge Society, 16 children waiting to travel were sent on their way.
The key recommendation of the inspectors, that the British home secretary agree each and every decision to send a child, was quietly shelved.
The Fairbridge Society continued to ship out children, though concentrated on those whose mothers intended to join them later.
David Hill's response is anger, even today. With tears in his eyes he says: "I'm surprised how vulnerable it has made me feel - that it could happen and happen to the extent that it did.
"The British government not only continued to approve children to be sent, but they financially subsidised for them to go. To institutions they had put on a blacklist unfit for children, condemned."
Molong Farm School finally closed in 1973. The Fairbridge Society is now part of the Prince's Trust and still runs activity holidays for children.
The Prince's Trust said it had never been involved in child migration, "but we do hold the archive of the former Fairbridge Society. We are cooperating fully with this important inquiry."
Bindoon remained open until 1966. It is now used as a Catholic college.
The Australian Royal Commission recently estimated that 7% of the country's Catholic priests were involved in child abuse.
And such is the scope of sexual abuse allegations in the Catholic and Anglican churches in the UK that entire strands of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse are dedicated to them.
The IICSA investigation will be able to seize the records, not just of the British government but also the migration institutions themselves - including the archives of the Fairbridge society.
Sixty years later, former Bindoon boy Clifford Walsh strongly believes this inquiry can help answer some of his questions about the culpability of the government and British institutions.
"They sent us to a place that was a living hell. How come they didn't know that? Why didn't they investigate? And if they investigated, then they were incompetent or there was a cover-up."
The child migration programme will also provide ample evidence for the UK's effort to consider the long-term effect of child sexual abuse. Something which may turn out to be a central theme of the inquiry.
Historian and Fairbridge boy David Hill estimates it took victims he interviewed 22 years on average before they felt able to disclose what happened.
But it will also provide a final chance for Britain's lost children to return to the land of their birth and tell their stories. The anger has not gone away, and their childhoods have left invisible scars which have lasted a lifetime.
One of the child migrants we spoke to asked us not to name him, after he returned to Bindoon armed with a sledgehammer.
His target? The ostentatious burial place of Brother Paul Keaney the institution's founder. By the time he'd finished, enough damage had been done to the marble grave slab that Bindoon's current owners, a Catholic college, were forced to remove what remained.
It was one man's small blow against a history of child cruelty.

Child migration is the migration of children, without their parents, to another country or region. In many cases this has involved the forced migration of children in care, to be used as child labour.
Thousands of children were forcibly migrated to Australia under assisted child migration schemes. The vast majority of children were migrated from the UK, with a small number from Malta. Child migrants were adopted or brought up in children’s homes, institutions, orphanages or foster care. Many of these children experienced neglect and abuse while in institutional care.
The philanthropists who sent Britain’s “orphans” thousands of miles overseas to farms in Australia and Canada believed they were performing a charitable deed.
Between the 1920s and the 1960s as many as 150,000 young children were despatched to institutions and foster homes abroad so that they might begin happier lives in the under-populated Commonwealth.
Charities including Barnardo’s, the Catholic church, the salvation army and local authorities helped organise the emigration of youngsters aged between three and 14. So the children could make a clean start, they were usually told their parents had died and birth certificates were destroyed
The children involved lost their real identities and were told they were orphans going on holiday to a place where the sun always shines. It was cheaper to send children to Australia than care for them on British soil. It cost £5 a day to care in the UK but only 10 shillings in Australian institutions.
In reality, many were children of single mothers who had been forced to give them up for adoption in an era when their solitary status constituted a grave social stigma.
The fresh beginning the children were promised degenerated into years of servitude and hard labour on remote farms and at state orphanages. They were often subjected to physical and sexual abuse, separated from their siblings and taunted for being “the sons of whores”.
The official Child Migrants Programme, which ended 40 years ago, ruined the lives of the most vulnerable. It has taken decades for the harm and emotional damage to be acknowledged. Nottingham social worker Margaret Humphreys uncovered the scandal, an has helped thousands retrace their relatives
In November 2009 Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd formally apologized to “Forgotten Australians” and child migrants on behalf of the nation. “Forgotten Australians” is a term the Australian Senate has used to describe children who were brought up in orphanages, children’s homes, institutions or foster care in Australia. Child migrants are a specific group of “Forgotten Australians”. In February 2010 British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown issued an official apology for the ‘shameful’ child resettlement programme and announced a £6 million fund designed to compensate the families affected by the “misguided” programme.
From the 1860s, children were sent from Britain to Canada, Australia and other Commonwealth countries through child migration schemes.
Few were orphans; many came from families who were unable to care for them. With the belief that the lives of these children would improve, charitable and religious organisations sent them overseas. They were supported by governments for which these schemes supplied much needed population and labour.
The lives of these children changed dramatically and fortunes varied. Some succeeded in creating new futures. Others suffered lonely, brutal childhoods. All experienced disruption and separation from family and homeland.
Child migration schemes received criticism from the outset yet continued until the 1960s. Many former child migrants and their families are still coming to terms with their experiences.
The voyage for many of the children was a time of fear but also of excitement and adventure; new friends were made, new sights seen and new places found to explore.
While the separation from home and family was hard, many children had left behind a life of hardship and neglect. The ceremony of departure inspired expectation and hope for their future.
Bindoon boys town – Evil destroyed the young migrants lives – Paedophilia, slave labour and beatings
Those who suffered the harshest treatment were the boys sent to Bindoon, an isolated institution north of Perth.
The Catholic Christian Brothers ran it. Children built it. British children were forced to do hard labour until they were 16-years-old. Some of them had unimaginable abuse inflicted on them, sexual, physical and mental.
Bindoon Boys Town: it sounded like an adventure camp to the pale-faced youngsters who emerged blinking into the sunlight at Fremantle, in Western Australia, after their six-month voyage from Southampton. Among them was Laurie Humphreys, looking forward to his new life in the “land of milk and honey”, where food was plentiful and children rode to school on horses, so he had been told.
It was September 1947, and the SS Asturias had just docked in Fremantle with 147 boys and girls, the first to arrive under a post-war plan to empty overflowing British orphanages and repopulate the former colonies with “good white stock”. Humphreys and other boys were dispatched to Bindoon, an isolated institution 60 miles north of Perth, run by the Christian Brothers, a Catholic lay order.
The first shock was the desolate landscape; the second was the place itself, an abandoned farm property. It was the boys who were to build Bindoon, and children as young as 10 were set to work, constructing schools, dormitories and kitchens. They hacked at the ground with picks and shovels, and mixed concrete by hand in the blazing heat. Those unable to cope with the back-breaking labour were flogged, sometimes until their bones were fractured.
But the routine thrashings – meted out for “offences” as trivial as bed-wetting or stealing fruit to supplement a miserable diet consisting mainly of bread and dripping – were not the worst of it. Sexual abuse was rife at Bindoon, and the boys dubbed their religious guardians the “Christian Buggers”. This grim regime was presided over by Brother Francis Keaney, 6ft tall and 17 stone. “I guess you could call him a sadist,” says Humphreys, one of an estimated 10,000 British children sent to Australia between 1947 and 1967.
An inquiry by the Australian Senate in 2001 heard stories of rape, abuse and cruelty, including children scrambling for breadcrumbs on the floor and a boy being forced to shoot and skin a horse he considered his only friend.
Almost as shocking was the deceit that had been practised on children who had been robbed of their country, roots and identity. “We were told we were orphans, that we had no one,” says Mick Snell, who has bleak memories of Dalmar House in Sydney, managed by the Methodist Wesley Mission. In fact, Snell had been given up as a baby because he was illegitimate. Other children were placed in care by impoverished families
Many former child migrants, who were as young as three when they were transported to the other side of the world, are still profoundly affected. Some never formed adult relationships; others are alcoholics. John Hennessy, a former Bindoon boy, speaks with a stutter – a legacy, he says, of being stripped naked and publicly flogged. “A lot are starting to top themselves,” says Snell, who admits he found it hard to show affection to his six children. In recent years, Snell has been afflicted by nightmares. “I sleep in a separate bedroom because I’m afraid I’m going to swing out and maybe hurt my wife. I dream I’m back there and I’m locked up, being verbally abused and whacked. I wake up in a cold sweat.”
Life at Bindoon, run by the Catholic Church’s Christian Brothers, was a catalogue of cruelty, where beatings and sexual assaults were daily events.
”Bindoon was nothing more than a paedophile ring,” Hennessey says. ”Most of the brothers were into raping and molesting little boys, sometimes sharing their favourites with each other.”
The boys were put to work building the series of grand buildings that Bindoon became. ”It was slave labour,” says Hennessey. Many of them are now deaf or partially deaf because they were constantly bashed around the head.
He recalls children resorting to stealing food from the pigs they tended – because the pigs were better fed. Brother Francis Keaney, the head of Bindoon, would eat bacon and eggs in front of boys who were fed porridge mixed with bran from the chicken feed. The boys would raid the bins for his scraps.
Hennessey was the leader of a group of hungry boys who raided Keaney’s vineyard one night. The next day the 193-centimetre tall, 108-kilogram priest stripped him naked in front of the others and beat him viciously with his fists and walking stick. Then, as Hennessey lay bleeding on the floor, the priest kicked him out the door with heavy boots. Hennessey has had a pronounced stutter ever since.
When he found a little boy crying because he had been molested, he took him to Keaney for counsel. ”He went into a rage, whacked me across the head, whacked the kid across the head and said, ‘Don’t you ever come into this office and tell me lies.”’
The worst thing about Dalmar House, which was infested with rats, and where he got up before 4am to milk the cows and worked until dark, six days a week, was the loneliness. “You had no one to turn to,” he says. No one showed the children any affection – unless you count the outsiders who turned up to take the younger boys out for the day. Snell remarks: “I know for a fact they were rock spiders [paedophiles]. The kids that were involved, they didn’t like talking about it.”
At Bindoon, the threat of violence was ever present. The brothers carried a strap consisting of four pieces of leather stitched together and a metal weight. Humphreys recalls one particularly vindictive man who “gave me one hell of a hiding” after he tried to protect a younger boy.
There was no teaching at Bindoon, and he knows several former inmates who still cannot read or write. Aged 14, he worked as a truck driver. All that sustained the children was each other. “You had good mates, and we were all in the hardship game together. And you knew nothing better. You knew nothing of love and affection. I can’t recall being given a Christmas or birthday present until I was married.”
Tracking down relatives after so much time and with little information can be a difficult task. A former Nottinghamshire social worker, Margaret Humphries, set up The Child Migrants Trust in 1987 after being approached to help track down a former child migrant’s family. It has since helped to locate the relatives of many former child migrants and reunite families.
Homopaedo Robert Ernest Excell's years of abuse at Fairbridge Farm School
One of WA’s most notorious paedophiles was secretly preying on boys at Fairbridge Farm School more than a decade before his first arrest on sexual abuse charges, a victim has revealed.
Robert Ernest Excell, who attained notoriety for spending 37 years in WA prisons after a string of sex crimes against children as young as seven, can now be shown to have begun a lifetime of child rape earlier than ever suspected.
Revelations about his unpunished, early crimes against young children have emerged along with evidence Excell was himself a victim of sexual abuse at Fairbridge.
Documentation obtained by The West Australian, including an unpublished manuscript the sex offender wrote in prison, shows Excell was forcibly sent to the Fairbridge Farm School as a child migrant where he says he was sexually abused by staff during the 1950s.
The serial sex fiend’s previously hidden reign of terror at the farm school is the latest bombshell to rock the ailing Fairbridge reputation, after _The Weekend West _revealed that more than 200 child migrants forcibly sent to the institution have been awarded more than $1.1 million in ex-gratia payments by the WA Government for sexual, psychological and physical abuse they suffered there while in State care.
A child migrant, who asked not to be named, has spoken out about the abuse he suffered at the hands of Excell.
He said he was one of several children who were molested by Excell in the 1950s when the paedophile was a teenager.
The child migrant said he was too afraid to report the incident to Fairbridge staff at the time.
“This bloke (Excell), he threatened us,” he said. “I was a young bloke and he was near enough to being as big as a full-sized man. When you’ve got a bloke like that you just shut up.”
The West Australian _has sighted the Redress WA application in which the victim detailed Excell’s abuse.
The WA Government, which accepted the victim’s claim, awarded him just over $10,000.
Alarmingly, the child migrant said he believed the extent of Excell’s sex crimes against Fairbridge children could be much more widespread, because after leaving the institution staff allowed him to return and “help out, with the kids.”
In a 99-year-old registry book – missing for decades until it was anonymously dropped off at the farm school last year – Excell is listed as having arrived at Fairbridge on June 24, 1950, at age 11.
Excell, who says he was first molested as a boy in Britain, wrote that he was raped by a staff member at Fairbridge.
In his prison manuscript, Excell wrote that his abuser was still working at Fairbridge and molesting children there when he returned at age 21. He said the children had asked him if he was aware this staff member was a predator.
“I said I knew that from when I was a kid, they said he had a couple of regulars and kept them in money.”
Excell also chillingly wrote of the sickening thoughts going through his tortured mind when he took children on unsupervised outings.
“They all went in swimming. In my mind was to ask them if the sex stuff still went on in the cottages – right at that moment I felt like holding one of them.”
He admitted touching at least one child under the guise of “fooling around” and wrote that he wanted the minor to commit sex acts on him.
One child migrant, who did not wished to be named, said there were at least three paedophiles among the Fairbridge staff that preyed on children in the 1950s.
Excell was first jailed in 1965 after he sodomised a seven-year-old boy. In 1973, he raped a nine-year-old boy and in 1977, he raped a 13-year-old boy.
Excell was freed in 1981 but within 18 months was charged with sex crimes against a nine and 10-year-old boy. Excell drove the children to the Fairbridge area where he made them commit indecent acts with each other and with him.
Shipped to Australia and told his parents were dead, a Welsh ‘orphan’ relives a difficult childhood
He was just seven when he was shipped to Australia believing his parents were dead.
Now David Crisp has spoken of falling victim to physical and sexual abuse in Australia having been told by British authorities he was going on holiday.
And he told of learning his parents were still alive and his 30-year search for them.
David was sent from Swansea down under and in 1952 was taken to a children’s home run by the Christian Brothers, who have recently apologised to victims for an “indefensible” record on child sexual abuse.
At 10 he was sent to an orphanage.
“I was there until I was 15 and didn’t find my mum until 1991,” he said.
“I had been chasing for 30 years but had given up because letters were not coming back.”
He was put into the care of nuns at Swansea’s Nazareth House by his grandmother because his mum, Rose Gosling, was a single Catholic mum. That was shortly after he was born.
But when she later came looking for him it was claimed he had been adopted then she was told he had been shipped to Australia.
“I was there the first time but they said I was adopted in London with rich people,” he said.
“That was a lie. The second time they said ‘He’s gone to Australia’.
“No-one knew where we were.”
In 2010 then Prime Minister Gordon Brown apologised for the scandal that saw 130,000 children sent to Britain’s colonies.
Decades after leaving Wales David had a call from the Child Migrants Trust, a charity that helps those sent from Britain as kids.
His mother had been found. He also had a brother, Les, and two sisters, Heather and Frances.
When his mother called on Christmas Day in 1991 he couldn’t understand her because of her accent.
“I was stunned,” said David, 68.
“She said, ‘Dave, this is your mum’. I froze, then I said ‘G’day mum’. I was about 45 I think.
“It was one of the biggest shocks and the best Christmas.
“I will never forget it, it was just amazing.”
At first he could barely understand her.
“Mum had a real Welsh accent,” he said.
“She was Welsh and talked too fast. God, she could talk.
“I had to tell her to slow down. She said ‘Am I talking to fast Dave?’
“I said ‘Yes. It’s bloody hard to hear you.’ She learned to talk slow on the phone.”
The next year Rose and his stepdad Frank came to visit David, who lives in Northam, near Perth, in Western Australia.
He took them to the orphanage where he was raised. Rose was horrified.
“Dave, you were in jail,” she said.
“We were slave kids,” the dad-of-one and grandfather-of-one said.
“But I said to mum ‘We didn’t know any better’.”
Kids were used as live in servants and used for free labour. Beatings and sex abuse were rife in his childhood.
“I was belted for being left handed,” David said.

|Independent Senator Rod Culleton has been declared bankrupt by the Federal Court in Western Australia
By John Wilson
“Independent Senator Rod Culleton has been declared bankrupt by the Federal Court in Western Australia, a decision that will disqualify him from parliament if it stands. Justice Michael Barker on Friday granted a 21-day stay on the bankruptcy order.”
But it’s just another Kangaroo Court …….. denying legal rights and disregarding legal procedures….in an unceasing barrage of thieves and traitors running rough-shod over ordinary unsuspecting victims. The banks are masterminding the whole obscenity and the so-called judges are willing and eager to take part in the conspiracy to defraud.
The rapacious banks and corrupt judges want Rodney Culleton out of the Senate because he has vowed to smash them….and they’ve got their well-established modus operandi in place to destroy him. Magna Carta? The Rule of Law? Trial by Jury? They are quickly disposed of in their Kangaroo Courts. It’s raw Tyranny in all its ugly manifestations!
Ironically, Rodney’s Christmas greeting just arrived on my Inbox and I have expanded upon it, below.
Rodney will not give in and has said to the media his still has legal avenues left. Well, it’s time to launch the full-scale offensive in this out-and-out war his enemies (yes, they’re our enemies, too …in fact, they are civilization’s enemies) have levied.
It’s time to expose the whole bizarre fiasco of Thievery and Treachery that has been allowed to exist for over 100 years because of one lie after another.
Rodney is not just fighting for his own family…he is fighting for all our families ….for Truth…and Justice…and Freedom ….and Democracy.

Report by John Wilson
One man in the spotlight, and fighting in court for truth and justice, is Rodney Norman Culleton – elected to the Australian Senate in his fight for truth and justice for all. He has suffered in the Kangaroo Courts where democracy has been disregarded…where a free man is deprived of “the lawful judgment of his equals” (1215 Magna Carta) and “an Arbitrary Power and Government” (1641 An Act for taking away the Court commonly called the Star Chamber) has taken root.
An inscription on the Magna Carta Monument in Canberra reads: “Magna carta is now seen as a traditional mandate for trial by jury, justice for all, accountable government and no arbitrary imprisonment”. This is the lesson of history that is withheld and not taught – resulting in the return of tyranny and slavery.
This thinly veiled tyranny seeks to remove Senator Culleton who, in his maiden speech on 12th October 2016, vowed to smash the banks and remove the corrupt judges. A hearing of questions given by the President of the Senate, regarding his eligibility under s.44 of the Australian Constitution, took place in the Court of Disputed Returns of the High Court of Australia on the 7th of December 2016 before 5 judges but no jury. The 5 judges reserved their judgment and it has not been handed down, as at the 16th of December.
The incident put forward postulating his ineligibility is a so-called conviction by a magistrate alone in a Local Court in Armidale in March 2016 for the larceny of a $7-50 car key…. a conviction that, by the Rule of Law, was null and void, ab initio, as Rodney Culleton did not consent to summary procedure. And the Kangaroo-ism continues with the High Court in Canberra.
A slave has no right of consent; no right to property; and no right to trial by jury.
Rodney Culleton’s fight is our fight. He deserves our support.
The FIGHT for FREEDOM is WON in COURT.
• The Fight for Freedom takes place one man at a time and becomes collective.
• Freedom begins with SUI JURIS….each man as his own master…and he is accountable.
• Multiples of Free Men build to DEMOCRACY ….. i.e.: people ruling themselves.
• People govern themselves through their courts that administer justice for all.
• Courts are where common law is made and bad laws are unmade, case by case.
• Jurisdiction comes from sovereignty… defined as “the ultimate authority to make and impose laws”.
• In a DEMOCRACY, sovereignty lies with the people – if they have that knowledge.
• However, “People are destroyed for the lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6).
• When people are kept ignorant, they are easy prey for thieves and traitors.
• “The purpose of a court in a civilized society is the vindication of men’s rights and the enforcement of just causes” (Lord Thomas Denning).
• When TYRANNY looms and FREEDOM is in peril, GO TO COURT!
• When TYRANNY descends upon the courts, call upon the SHERIFF to intervene.
• When the SHERIFF fails in his duty, then LAWFUL REBELLION is INESCAPABLE!
| Rod Culleton: Australian Farmers fighting back against ANZ bank VIDEO
Report by John Wilson
Australian HIGH COURT of TREACHERY:
“CRIMES ACT 1914 - SECT 24AA. Treachery. (1) A person shall not: (a) do any act or thing with intent: (i) to overthrow the Constitution of the Commonwealth by revolution or sabotage; ……….Penalty: Imprisonment for life.” The TREACHERY by Judges extends throughout the Commonwealth and is primarily the Denying of the Right to TRIAL BY JURY which overthrows the Sovereignty of the People…..overthrows the People’s “ultimate authority to make and impose laws”….overthrows Common Law as the superior law to prevail over Acts of Parliament that might be contrary to common right…eliminates the conscience and voice of the People that determine community values.
The Denial of the Right to Trial by Jury takes place in all the courts of Australia - with the FAMILY COURT responsible for the most suicides when Justice denied. A “Kangaroo Court” is defined as one that “acts unfairly or dishonestly or disregards legal rights or disregards legal procedures”. The HIGH COURT is at the top of this pyramid of sinister authoritarianism and “NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON”.
Australian courts are a SHAM – fake, pretended, feigned, simulated, false, artificial, bogus, synthetic, spurious, ersatz, insincere, not genuine, manufactured, contrived, affected, plastic, make-believe, fictitious. They are not “places where justice administered” but businesses where “Greed is Good” (Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas in the film, “Wall Street”).
Australian courts are THEATRES of the ABSURD - preposterous, ridiculous, ludicrous, farcical, laughable, idiotic, stupid, foolish, imbecilic, insane, unreasonable, irrational, illogical, nonsensical, outrageous, monstrous, fantastic, incongruous, unbelievable, incredible, implausible. The leading roles are played by an “unelected aristocracy”(Rodney Culleton’s description of them), the so-called Judges, with a supporting cast of actors pretending to “represent their clients” but diligently keeping to the script learnt at the Law Schools and a staff of clerks “just doing their job”.
Australian courts are HOSTILE TERRITORY - guarded by troops that ought to be on our side to “ensure that people can exercise their rights in court in safety” as their Oath and Duty of Care, the Sheriffs, but “they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).
SLAVES and MUSHROOMS:
Australia is a county of slaves ruled by thieves (banks) and traitors (the judges). The thieves (banks) steal by fraud, i.e.: variable interest loans and creating money out of thin air, and the traitors (judges) deny the right to trial by jury to protect the thieves.
Australians are given the “MUSHROOM TREATMENT” in the schools and by the media…. “Kept in the dark and fed a lot of ***”.
The High Court of Australia is a Star Chamber that is “an intollerable burthen to the subjects and the meanes to introduce an Arbitrary Power and Government” [Charles I, 1641 An Act for [the Regulating the Privie Councell and for taking away the Court commonly called the Star Chamber] operating for the benefit of the greatest thieves in history who use Australian Parliaments to generate licences to steal.
Newly elected Senator Rodney Culleton vowed in his maiden speech on 12th October 2016 to bring down the banks and remove the errant judges. This they could not permit and they have set in motion a plan to “disqualify” him from office. The plan is being carried out through the system of the Kangaroo Courts already established to steal from and disenfranchise the general populace. The formality of “questions” being asked by the Attorney-General to the High Court as to whether Senatore Culleton has offended/infringed against s 44 of the Australian Constitution is presently under way with a “Hearing” by the “Full Court”, i.e.: 5 judges, on 7th December 2016 that concluded in a “Reserved Judgment”.
A typically Kangaroo Court was conducted on 2 March 2016 in Armidale Local Court against Rodney Norman Culleton that “convicted” him in his absence of the larceny of a $7-50 car key. That “conviction” was null & void, ab initio, because of Magna Carta 1215 and Confirmation of Charters 1297 that are the Rule of Law in Australia. The now-Senator Culleton was denied trial by jury then and is being denied trial by jury still. The modus operandi of eliminating juries “to steal and kill and destroy” [John 10:10] is “the evil that presently triumphs because good men are doing nothing” [Edmund Burke].
However, the Australian Constitution, that the banks and judges are trying to use to “disqualify” Senator Culleton, is a “law of the Commonwealth” and mandates trial by jury for any such offence. Therefore, when the “Reserved Judgment” is handed down to answer the questions asked, that information, i.e.: an indictment under s 4A of the Crimes Act 1914, necessitates trial by jury under s 80 of that very same Australian Constitution. It is “Catch 22” for the banks and judges. They are trying to use the courts to destroy Senator Culleton but will, instead, the application of the law bring them to justice. “Trial by jury is the only anchor yet imagined by man that can hold a government to the principles of its constitution” [Thomas Jefferson] and maintains the position that “Rights never Die”.
The “Reserved Judgment” was to have been delivered on Friday 9th of December but is being delayed with no date being given by the Registry, phone: (02) 9230 8369. Meanwhile, the stealing and corruption continues.
WHY DOES RODNEY CULLETON WANT TRIAL BY JURY?
He is the norm. He is a victim of being denied a jury from the beginning of his troubles that, in this instance, concerned a loan and an invention. He is a man of the land – a farmer, and he is a man with a conscience – he knows what is right and what is wrong. He is a primary producer – providing for and essential to the welfare of his family and his country. He cultivates and preserves his property. He is a defender.
However, there are others who are not. There are others who “steal and kill and destroy”. There are others who are rapacious and cunning – and they have been around forever. In 1215, another a very important “forever” was born – the Magna Carta – “TO ALL FREE MEN OF OUR KINGDOM we have also granted, for us and our heirs for ever, all the liberties written out below, to have and to keep for them and their heirs, of us and our heirs:”. This LAW of the LAND mandated TRIAL BY JURY and chronicled rights that are the COMMON LAW.
Rodney Culleton knew that financial shenanigans with the ANZ BANK and LANDMARK were wrong. He knew that the pilfering of his patent rights to his GRAIN KEG INVENTION was wrong. But never was he allowed a jury ....never was he allowed to exercise his inalienable right to “the lawful judgment of his equals which is the law of the land” (Magna Carta). He innocently trusted lawyers and judges. The litany of the kangaroo court cases did not deter him. The incident of the $7-50 key took place when trespassers came onto his property. It was seen as another opportunity to persecute Rodney Culleton and, again, another kangaroo court took place in Armidale on 2nd March 2016 and, again, another false and malicious “Judgment” made.
That nullity of the Armidale “Judgment” is now the “$7-50 key” to unlock the door to “Justice for All” and the restoration of all the “Lawes and Liberties” our ancestors have fought and died for over many centuries ..….“Life’s funny that way” - from the Bing Crosby song, “Wrap your troubles in dreams”.
PS: I have just watched to end of an old “QI” television comedic quiz show and the final question from Stephen Fry was “What is the difference between a sperm and a lawyer?”. When no one could answer, he said, “A sperm has a one in fifty million chance of turning into a human being.”
PPS: I hope Rodney has finally rid himself of lawyers and does what he did that night of his maiden speech in the Senate when he stood in his own shoes and did it his way. TRIAL BY JURY is a FREE MAN talking to 12 of HIS EQUALS - because TRIAL BY JURY is DEMOCRACY is the bottom-line.
|Australian Senator Rodney Culleton, VICTIM of Bank’s Assassin Barrister
Peter Spencer and Rodney Culleton
Reported by John Wilson
Remember Peter Spencer?....Well, it’s happened again!
“Whereas the late King James the Second by the Assistance of diverse evill Councellors Judges and Ministers imployed by him did endeavour to subvert and extirpate the Protestant Religion and the Lawes and Liberties of this Kingdome.” (Bill of Rights 1689) is the sickening repetitive deja vue as the bank’s assassin barrister, Peter King, strikes again using the same tactics he used to destroy the “Tower of Hope” farmer Peter Spencer. “FORGET TRIAL BY JURY” he told Rodney..and Rodney fell for it.
Yesterday, in the Australian STAR CHAMBER, not one word of Trial by Jury was heard. The Australian High Court was the EXECUTION SCENE as Senator Rodney Culleton’s maiden speech on 12th October 2016 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Pbt7cQ_bkE ) was ground into the dirt and “The truth will make you free” was stabbed through the heart.
Like Peter Spencer, Rodney Culleton demanded Trial by Jury as the Path to Justice – but the operative of the thieves and traitors (i.e.: the banks and judges) persuaded them to trust him. The evil in courtroom #2 of the High Court of Australia was subtle but over-powering. Rodney’s public statements of “It’s got to be trial by jury” were muted as he sat behind his legal representative. The Circus of Wickedness (re: Ecclesiastes 3:16) was played out for the nation’s media and the 5 black-robed children of the Father of Lies (John 8:44) were victorious, yet again.
Below is what I emailed to Rodney the night before but he trusted Peter King.
The “reserved judgment” will come in on Friday and the thieves and traitors will sit back, content and confident that their stealing and betraying will continue.
But what of our champion? Can he bounce back? His Fight for Truth and Justice is reeling under the present onslaught. He is a strong man with a passion and determination. While he still stands in the Senate and for as long as the media rush to him with their cameras and tape recorders turned on, he can. Once he has left the public arena is too late. TRIAL BY JURY is his banner and his LOVE FOR OTHERS is his energy. SO HELP HIM, GOD!
FOR A HEARING IN THE MATTER OF QUESTIONS REFERRED TO THE HIGH COURT:
IT IS BEFORE THE FULL COURT….. IS NOT BY TRIAL BY JURY.
· AS A FREE MAN, I HAVE THE INALIENABLE RIGHT TO “THE LAWFUL JUDGMENT OF MY EQUALS”.
· AUSTRALIA IS A COMMON LAW COUNTRY…A DEMOCRACY where SOVEREIGNTY LIES WITH THE PEOPLE.
· DENYING TRIAL BY JURY IS USURPING THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE PEOPLE.
Therefore, I have no alternative than to CHALLENGE THE JURISDICTION OF THE COURT:
· I do not consent to be without a Jury. The Court has not obtained my consent to be without a Jury which is clear and unequivocal. I have not signed a MEMORANDUM OF CONSENT to be without a Jury and allow this Court to proceed otherwise.
· My Right to TRIAL BY JURY has been granted and guaranteed for ever by MAGNA CARTA’S “No free man shall be taken indeed imprisoned, or dispossessed, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner destroyed, nor pass over him, nor send over him, except by means of the lawful judgment of his own equals which is the law of the land.”
· My Right to TRIAL BY JURY is protected by the CONFIRMATION OF CHARTER’S “And we will that if any judgment be given from henceforth, contrary to the points of the charters aforesaid, by the justices or by any other our ministers that hold plea before them against the points of the charters, it shall be undone and holden for naught.”
· When the Right to TRIAL BY JURY was disregarded, such as in “the Court called the STAR CHAMBER”, that court was ABOLISHED in 1641 because it was “found to be an intollerable burthen to the subjects and the meanes to introduce an Arbitrary Power and Government.”
IN MY MAIDEN SPEECH TO THE SENATE, I VOWED TO BRING THE BANKS and THE JUDICARY TO ACCOUNT…….IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE.
I HAVE SUFFERED, AS HAVE MILLIONS OF AUSTRALIANS, AT THE HANDS OF COURTS THAT HAVE CONSISTENTLY DISREGARDED THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY TO BRING IN ARBITRARY JUDGMENTS TO SO-CALLED “CONVICT” and “BANKRUPT” ME.
AGAIN, I FACE BEING “DESTROYED” IN ANOTHER COURT.
NOW, I WILL NOT SURRENDER MY RIGHTS and I CHALLENGE THE JURISDICTION OF THE COURT…..a LEGAL PROCEDURE WHICH MANDATES an IMMEDIATE and COMPULSORY STAY OF PROCEEDINGS UNTIL THE JURISDICTION IS DETERMINED BY A SPECIAL JURY.
In any action, both parties must give their clear and unequivocal consent to be without a Jury. Without that consent, the Court has no Jurisdiction to proceed summarily and the Jurisdiction of the Court must be challenged. This Challenge can only be judged by a Special Jury. Should a Judge or Magistrate disregard or dismiss this Challenge, then he or she is liable to imprisonment for 5 years. Should a Judge or Magistrate disregard or dismiss this Challenge, that is a violation of Due Process and the Rule of Law.
Due Process is a course of legal proceedings according to rules and principles that have been established in a system for jurisprudence for the enforcement and protection of private rights. Due Process derives from early English Common Law. The first concrete expression of the Due Process idea embraced by Anglo-American law appeared in the 39th Article of Magna Carta 1215. (Encyc. Brit.)
“Once jurisdiction is challenged, it must be proven.” (Jagens v. Lavine, 415 S.Ct.768). “Jurisdiction can be challenged at any time, even on final determination.” (Basso v. Utah Power & Light Co., 495 2nd 906 at 910). “Where there is an absence of jurisdiction, all administrative and judicial proceedings are a nullity and confer no right, offer no protection, and afford no justification, and may be rejected upon direct collateral attack.” (Thompson v. Tolmie, 2 Pet. 157, 7 L.Ed. 382; Griffith v. Frazier, 8 Cr. 9, 3L. Ed. 471).
The Right to Trial by Jury is an inalienable Right of all Freemen (Part 1 - Constitutional Enactments listed in the NSW Imperial Acts Application Act 1969 No. 30, Second Schedule).
It is the Rule of Law that is (1.) The supremacy of law. and (2) a feature attributed to the UK constitution by Professor Dicey (Law of the Constitution, 1885). It embodied three concepts: the absolute predominance of regular law, so that the government has no arbitrary authority over the citizen; the equal subjection of all (including officials) to the ordinary law administered by the ordinary courts; and the fact that the citizen’s personal freedoms are formulated and protected by the ordinary law rather than by abstract constitutional declarations.(Oxford Reference, A Dictionary of Law, Oxford University Press)
I am a Freeman, the equal of any other Freeman, and have the Right to the lawful Judgment of a congregation of twelve other Freemen gathered together as a Jury, with each Juror asking “So help me God”, in order that they can administer Justice.
A Legal Maxim says, “Rights never die”.
MAGNA CARTA 1215, CAP XXXIX: "No freeman shall be taken indeed imprisoned, either dispossessed, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner destroyed, nor pass over him, nor send over him, except by means of the legal judgment of his own equals indeed the law of the land. To no one will we sell, to no one will we deny or delay, Right or Justice.".
The CONFIRMATION OF THE CHARTERS, 1297 says: “…that the Great Charters of Liberties and the Charter of the Forest, which were made by common assent of all the realm, in the time of King Henry our father, shall be kept in every point without breach….we have granted that they shall be observed in all points, and that our justices, sheriffs, mayors, and other officials which under us have to administer the laws of our land, shall allow the said charters in pleas before them and in judgments in all their points….And we will that if any judgment be given from henceforth, contrary to the points of the charters aforesaid, by the justices or by any other ministers that hold plea before them against the points of the charters, it shall be undone and holden for naught.”
The PETITION OF RIGHT, 1627 says: in section 3. “And where also by the statute called, The Great Charter of the Liberties of England, it is declared and enacted, That no freeman may be taken or imprisoned, or be desseised of his freehold or liberties or his free customs, or to be outlawed or exiled, or in manner destroyed, but by the lawful judgment of his peers, or by the law of the land.” and in section 8. “That the awards, doings and proceedings, to the prejudice of your people in any of the premises, shall not be drawn hereafter into consequence or example.”
The SUPREME COURT PROCEDURE ACT No. 49, 1900 says under section 3. “(1) In any action by consent of both parties the whole or any one or more of the issues of fact in question may be tried, or the amount of any damages or compensation may be assessed by a Judge without a jury.”.
The COMMON LAW PROCEDURE ACT No: 21, 1899 are relevant to the conduct of proceedings in this or any matter before the Supreme Court of New South Wales: “s.256. Upon the hearing of any motion or summons, the Court or Judge may, upon such terms as the Court of Judge thinks reasonable, order any document to be produced, and any witness to appear and be examined viva voce, either before the Court or a Judge or before a commissioner for affidavits; and upon hearing such evidence or reading the deposition may make such rule or order as may be just”.
“s.257. (1) The Court or Judge may by such rule or order, or by any subsequent rule or order, command the attendance of the witnesses named therein for the purpose of being examined or the production of any document mentioned therein”.
“s.259. The Court or judge may amend any notice of motion, rule nisi, writ, pleading, affidavit, jurat or title of affidavit, record, praecipe, or other proceeding used before the Court or Judge not likely to mislead the opposite party on any point essential to the merits of the case, and may award such reasonable costs of such amendment as to the Court or Judge seem fit.”
The INTERPRETATION ACT No. 15, 1987 says under section 30. “(1) The amendment or repeal of an Act or statutory rule does not: …(c) affect any right, privilege, obligation or liability acquired, accrued or incurred under the Act or statutory rule.”.
Every person is entitled to NATURAL JUSTICE which is described as the “Rules of fair play, originally developed by the court of equity to control the decisions of inferior courts and then gradually extended (particularly in the 20th century) to apply equally to the decisions of administrative and domestic tribunals and any authority exercising an administrative power that affects a person’s status, rights and liabilities. Any decision reached in contravention of natural justice is void as ultra vires. There are 2 principal rules: (1) The first is the rule against bias (ie: against departure from the standard of even-handed justice required of those who occupy judicial office) - nemo judex in causa sua (or in propria causa). This means that any decision, however fair it may seem, is invalid if made by a person with any financial or other interest in the outcome or any known bias that might have affected his impartiality. The second rule is known as audi alteram partem (hear the other side). It states that a decision cannot stand unless the person directly affected by it was given a fair opportunity both to state his case and to know and answer the other side’s case.”(Oxford Reference A Dictionary of Law, Oxford University Press, Third Edition).
HALSBURY’S LAWS OF AUSTRALIA says under (130-13460): “Consent to summary jurisdiction. The consent to be tried summarily must be clear and unequivocal and a failure to carry out the procedures for obtaining the consent will deprive the court of jurisdiction to determine the matters summarily.”
“To no one will we sell, to no one will we deny of delay Right or Justice.” (MAGNACARTA)
| AUSTRALIA ON TRIAL: Is Australia a DEMOCRACY?
by John Wilson
WHAT IS DEMOCRACY?:
Democracy means “People Rule” (from the Greek “demos” – people, and “kratos” – rule) and that means Sovereignty (“the ultimate authority to make and impose laws”) lies with the People….We the People ….as the final judges of what is right and what is wrong… of what is necessary for the protection of our nation and the preservation and ensuring of our God- given rights.
HOW WAS DEMOCRACY ACHIEVED?:
In the heart of Canberra, the Capital of Australia, is the Magna Carta Monument that commemorates the Great Charter of Liberties and has emblazoned there “Nullus liber homo capitur vel imprisonetur, aut disseisiatur, aut utlagetur, aut exuletur, aut aliquo modo destruatur, nec super eum ibimus, nec super eum mittemus, nisi per legale judicium parium suorum vel per legem terrae.” - No free man shall be taken indeed imprisoned, either dispossessed, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner destroyed, nor pass over him, nor send over him, except by means of the lawful judgment of his own equals indeed the law of the land. It tells its story on plaques and murals of the triumphing of good over evil….of freedom over slavery…of equality over tyranny. It is testimony of the guaranteeing of the right to trial by jury for the administration of justice.
Now, in 2016, history is repeating itself. Once again, the oppressions and deprivations by tyrants have emerged with brutish and perversions of truth by a new and ruthless regime. In 1215, it was at the hands of King John. Today, we have the Banks who must be brought to justice. But the Banks have been relentlessly structuring their power base to take for themselves the legislatures and judiciaries so that they, for all intents and purposes, would seem to be invincible….apart from that “Palladium of Liberty”, that “glory of English law”, that one anchor that holds onto the ship of humanity.
The titanic battle between good and evil comes to a watershed in the High Court in Canberra with a single man who has vowed to smash the Banks and restore law and justice to the victims of fraud and the obscenities of kangaroo courts …courts that “act unfairly or dishonestly or disregard legal rights or disregard legal procedures” that are responsible for untold numbers of suicides, destruction of families and the wrongful shattering of hopes and dreams.
WHO IS RODNEY CULLETON?:
He is a farmer from Western Australia whom fate has placed him into the Senate of the Commonwealth Parliament of Australia. He has suffered at the hands of rapacious Banks and been denied his Common Law right to trial by jury at every turn that started with, of course, a loan that was as fraudulent as are all loans contrived by Banks. The followed a sequence of corrupt dealings by the ANZ Bank which corrupt courts protected to culminate in stealing his farm and devastating his financial security.
Rodney Norman Culleton is not a man to just rollover and submit. He is fighting with all his strength and all his heart and mind. He was elected to the Senate where he fights on. He is 52 and a family man. He is a man of the land…a farmer and an enterprising one, at that. He has been defrauded by banks in business and cheated by judges in the courts. His maiden speech in Australia’s Parliament left no doubt as to why he is there when he finished with “And for all the farmers: I said I would come here and when I made it simply say: and well may we say God save the Queen, because nothing will save these bankers!”
He knows the banks are protected by the judges in kangaroo courts that are far more corrupt than any “Court commonly called the Star Chamber”, which incidentally was abolished by statute in 1641. That “Star Chamber Court” disregarded the Common Law Right of Trial by Jury and was declared “to be an intollerable burthen to the subjects and the meanes to introduce an Arbitrary Power and Government”. Now that “intollerable burthen” is compounded as so-called judges conspire with the greatest thieves in history (the banks) to pervert the course of justice by disenfranchising defenceless ordinary folk.
IS HE WALKING INTO THE LION’S DEN?:
On the 21st of November 2016, High Court Chief Justice Robert French conducted a “Directions” hearing to set in motion proceedings where Rodney Culleton is accused of breaching s.44 of the Australian Constitution, i.e.: that he “has been convicted and is under sentence, or subject to be sentenced, for any offence punishable under the law of the Commonwealth or of a State by imprisonment for one year or longer”, which rendered him “incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives”. He is accused to signing Form 59 'Nomination of a Senator' declaring “I am qualified under the Constitution and the laws of the Commonwealth to be elected as a Senator.” Rodney Culleton is being accused of swearing a false oath….he is being accused of committing fraud. He is facing disqualification from the Senate and criminal conviction.
On the 21st of November 2016, High Court Chief Justice Robert French told Senator Culleton he will face a “Full Court” which means 7 Judges and no Jury, i.e.: a Star Chamber Court. When Rodney was leaving the building he was interviewed by television crews and journalists. He told them “I am going to have a jury on this and that is what we want, because I want a fair trial and I do want a jury." … maintaining his determination when he previously said, “I will protest and I will run this home in the Parliament for the Australian people – it appears we have had our rights removed because everything comes down to a single judge and not a jury. This may be why the banks can act above the law when they go to state courts – they think they are invincible – but if you put a jury in the court let’s see how many times the bankers win then.”
CONVICTION WITHOUT JURISDICTIONAL CONSENT IS VOID:
The truth is that Rodney Culleton has never experienced the benefit of his inalienable Common Law Right to Trial by Jury. He has always been on the wrong and wrongful end of so-called judges and magistrates acting summarily, arbitrarily and even in his absence. This was repeatedly over the “$7-50 Key Affair”. There was NO CONVICTION against Rodney Culleton because no conviction was possible under “Constitutional Enactments” such as Magna Carta 1215, Confirmation of Charters 1297, Petition of Right 1627, Habeas Corpus1641 and Bill of Rights1689. Confirmation of Charters unarguably states: “2. And we will that if any judgment be given from henceforth, contrary to the points of the charters aforesaid, by the justices or by any other our ministers that hold plea before them against the points of the charters, it shall be undone and holden for naught.”
JUDGES CONCEAL CROWN FRAUD:
The “Crown of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland” ceased to have sovereignty over the Commonwealth of Australia the moment the Commonwealth of Australia came into being by Proclamation – which was 1st January 1901 at a grand ceremony in Sydney’s Centennial Park (please see the public records). All previous Crown lands were handed over to the People of Australia to be a self-governing independent state. All executive power, previously vested in the Queen, was passed to the People of Australia. On the 9th of July 1900, Queen Victoria (24th May1819 – 22th January 1901) signed the United Kingdom Parliament’s “An Act to Constitute the Commonwealth of Australia. 63 & 64 Victoria. Chapter 12”. The only time Letters Patent were issued by the Privy Council, i.e.: the Queen-in-Council, appointing a Governor-General were dated 28th October 1900. This was for that particular gentleman, Lord John Hopetoun (1860 – 1908), to carrying out the handing-over.
Prior to 1901, judges were appointed by the Queen, either directly through the Privy Council, or by the Queen’s appointed representative who was a Governor of a respective State, eg: New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, etc. From 1901 on, there have been no Letters Patent appointing those representatives and, therefore, any purported appointments of judges had neither authenticity nor legitimacy. This meant that supposed granting of “Royal Assent” to State or Federal Acts of Parliament was consequently fraudulent.
AS “THE PLOT DEEPENS”:
For the reasons above, “Chief Justice” Robert Shenton French is desperate to not allow Rodney Culleton access to a Jury. Whistleblowers, such an Ian Henke and David Eastman, have compiled the evidence of the deception into books (“Australia: the Concealed Colony” and “The Foundation Documents of the Commonwealth of Australia”)…and even I have constantly Challenged the Jurisdiction of the Court.
Antoine Voltaire said, “It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong”. Now, Rodney Culleton is experiencing the same. But Senator Culleton “has the floor” to bravely tell the truth. He is in the Senate. He has his website. He commands the attention of the media. Previous whistleblowers are silenced, imprisoned, stripped of their civil & political & human rights, and financially destroyed by these kangaroo courts. Yes, “It is dangerous…”.
DEMOCRACY OR NEW WORLD ORDER?
Is Australia a DEMOCRACY ? Are we “young and free”, as we sing in “Advance Australia Fair”? Or is Australia a SLAVE NATION under the totalitarianism of a NEW WORLD ORDER where we have (i) NO Right of Consent; (ii) NO Right to Property; and (iii) NO Right to Trial by Jury?
AND SO, AUSTRALIA IS ON TRIAL:
N.B.: In Courtroom #3 of the High Court Building in Parkes, Canberra, is an UNUSED Jury Box. “The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance”.

The 2 combatants: Senator Rodney Norman Culleton and Chief Justice Robert Shenton French:
by John Wilson
Senator Rodney Norman Culleton is the People’s Champion to defeat the seemingly invincible Goliath of the Banksters
and his sling-shot is the rock of Trial by Jury. The battle field is the High Court. The Biblical comparisons are
all there and the enemy has read the script. Rodney knows it, too.
He knows that only Trial by Jury can bring down
the towering Colossus of Evil. This is why these modern-day Philistines are trying frantically to strip Rodney of his Common Law Right to Trial by Jury. The Banksters have figured that the courts and the parliaments are theirs and are gloating in anticipation.
And so, the stage is set. On Monday in the High Court, Chief Justice Robert Shelton French said Rodney Culleton
(our SuperSenator) would be facing a “Full Court” to defend himself from being “disqualified” from Parliament,
i.e.: 7 of what he called “an unelected Aristocracy” whom he has targeted with the Banks in, for example,
his maiden speech to the Senate on 12 November 2016.
Is this not funny? Oh, yes! These characters actually think that the Australian people will swallow such an absurdity. Rodney has become the highest profiled crusader for justice condemning “a reign of terror for which only physical violence or the threat of it, and the good common sense of Swat Teams and Police called upon to commit proxy violence in the name of Banks, Financiers and non compliant Courts, created by the States of Australia on any individual or family or corporation that dared to make a Political protest causing suicides family breakups, destruction of the family unit, and immense heartbreak to thousands of committed hard working Australians”(from his Submission to the High Court).
Senator Culleton is demanding his common law right to trial by jury, for obvious reasons.
In fact, it is the very denial of the right to trial by jury over that alleged “larceny” of a $7-50 key that renders any so-called “conviction” to be “not be drawn hereafter into consequence or example” (Petition of Right 1627) and “illegall and void” (Bill of Rights 1688).
Denying the right to trial by jury is most definitely Treason – being “an act intent on overthrowing the sovereignty of the people”. And yet, this has been happening in every court throughout the Commonwealth of Australia.
“His Honour Chief Justice” Robert Shenton French is determined to crush Senator Rodney Norman Culleton in that STAR CHAMBER court in Canberra.
Good luck, Rod. So help us God.
